Called the first and greatest of English detective novels by T. S. Eliot, Wilkie Collins's The Moonstone is a masterpiece of suspense.

A fabulous yellow diamond becomes the dangerous inheritance of Rachel Verinder. Outside her Yorkshire country house watch the Hindu priests who have waited for many years to reclaim their ancient talisman, looted from the holy city of Somnauth.

When the Moonstone disappears, the case looks simple, but in mid-Victorian England, no one is what they seem, and nothing can be taken for granted. Witnesses, suspects, and detectives each narrate the story in turn. The bemused butler, the love-stricken housemaid, the enigmatic detective Sergeant Cuff, the drug-addicted scientist - each speculate on the mystery as Collins weaves their narratives together.

    " It was a pretty lengthy novel, and I had to do read it for a presentation. But I found that after the first 100 pages or so, I really got into the novel. It is really interesting, and it's great. Such a classic novel, and I think I still remember who did it. But I don't want to be confusing the novels up.. "

    " This book has different sections written by different characters/eye witnesses, and I really like how each character came through in their portions. I also have to say that I suspected several different people as being the culprit at different times in the book, and one them ended up being the thief. "

    " I'd read parts of this before, but I don't remember it being this funny. Loved the narratives by Betteredge and Clack just for their sheer lunacy. "

    " My new favorite book. I thoroughly enjoyed it from the first page to the last (and it is a rather large novel)! I was entranced by the characters and the narratives, and I found the historical formality of language quite engaging. I even enjoyed, I blush to add, the overly-academic introduction, as it has been far too long since I've spent much time in lit studies for which I obviously hungered, unbeknownst to me. "
